National Theatre Hosts ‘What Can Come Can Come’


A play entitled, “What Can Come Can Come,” would be premiered at the National Theatre in Accra toda,y May 22 and tomorrow, May 23, 2015.

The theme of the play is centered on pride, its negatives and positives, and is produced by Globe Productions in partnership with the National Theatre, Graphic Showbiz and Citi FM asa hilarious family play.

In the face of rhetorical terms such as ‘Yentie Obiaa’ and ‘dead goat syndrome,’ which have entered Ghanaian conversations, the play seeks to portray the role such expressions play in the Ghanaian culture, especially family settings.

In ‘What Can Come Can Come,’ Frank, the poor unemployed graduate, grew up not knowing who his father was and anytime he asked about his father, his mother said, “Your father is dead, not exactly dead but dead.”

Now an adult, Frank meets and falls in love with the daughter of Mr Arthur, a man whose “Yentie Obiaa” attitude led to an early retirement and a drain on his family’s finances. Yet, Mr Arthur doesn’t mind his kind: an egoistically proud man, wants a rich man to date his daughter rather than poor Frank.

Does Efua give in to the rich man and her dad’s pressure? How does the story of Frank’s father, being “dead but not exactly dead but dead,” unfold?

The play features known actors and actresses like Ekow Smith Asante; 2013 ‘Ghana Most Beautiful’ winner, Poka and some rising comedians like Clement Ashitey, known as Sarkodie and Prince Amoabeng, aka General Ntatia.

The play is sponsored by Carnival Strawberry and supported by Lenon, Eco Spa and Blue Skies.
